Achieving Successful Strategic Procurement in the Chemical Industry

Sep 16, 2018

Strategic procurement is a plan that is crafted with the sole objective of achieving goals that may be quite far off in the distance, such as five or ten years into the future.  A strategic procurement strategy not only helps come up with short-term solutions but rather involves coming up with strategies that will serve the long-term purpose. In any organization, strategic procurement plans are created by top-level management and the same applies to firms in the chemical industry. A strategic procurement plan also influences the tactical procurement plans that are developed and implemented.  It is a comprehensive plan that takes into account the targeted objectives and needs of the procurement department of the firm. Strategic procurement is one of the most significant tools that helps in maximizing the valuerequest proposal contribution of any company. It serves as a guide for any organization and should be updated regularly at the interval of a year to ensure its alignment with the overall business strategy.
